Epiphone Les Paul Black Beauty Three is a super hit electric guitar. As its name indicates, the LP Black Beauty is the pinnacle in elegance in look and tone. With the help of the third Humbucker pickup, this custom guitar is equipped with features that offer amazing delivery of sound and expression.

The black beauty:

The Epiphone Les Paul Black Beauty Three electric guitar is really a beauty. Gold hard ware on the black body! We cannot think of a better combo with the mother of pearl inlays. It features 3 Alnico Classic Humbucker pickups in order to extend to your tonal range, a set of slim-taper mahogany neck, a solid mahogany body, 22 fret rosewood fingerboard, cream body, fingerboard, headstock binding and block inlays. The LockTone Tune-O-Matic bridge and stopbar tailpiece of the Black Beauty offers more sustain and makes the process of string changing very easy.

Reliability and durability:

The durability of the Epiphone guitar is unquestionable and the finish is lasting. This electric guitar is dependable and is good for the gigs. However, we found that the factory strings seem to break off quite easily when played heavily; so we would advise you to change the strings as soon as you get it. Overall, it is a reliable guitar.

Sound and Action:

The sound is meaty, round and clean, not like a Start Type. It can basically play any style like metal, rock, jazz and blues. It is an extremely versatile baby aided by its middle hummer. The rhythm pickup possesses a great full and clean tone, whereas the treble gives a more raw sound; however, the guitar can sound great if used properly. The guitar has a pretty good variety of sound with some good sustain. We have the tone on 10 for more power. You will not be able to get a twangy sound, like in the intro of the “Smells like teen spirit”; but the tone is really phat sounding because of the thick 9 and heavy mahogany body. The action on the guitar is good and is also lovely to be played on.
